Carey Parrish was born in Dalton, Georgia. He attended Southeast
Whitfield High School, graduating in 1985, before first pursuing a
career in nursing. After traveling quite extensively during his twenties
and early thirties, he began to use the experiences and adventures he
had globetrotting to fuel his ambitions to become a writer. He began
writing professionally in his late thirties, shortly after the death of his
maternal grandmother, an event he credits as "the single most life
changing event in my experience," and he was soon selling articles to
British based reFRESH magazine as well as in American publications
such as Entertainment Weekly, Crime Rant, and various other
magazines, both in print and online.

In 2006, Parrish founded Web Digest Weekly e-magazine. After
being involved in various writers groups online, he was very impressed
with the talents of his many of his peers and he wanted to develop a
forum through which they could reach as many readers as possible.
Web Digest Weekly, which ran until 2010, was an immediate success,
due to his first interview guests being bestselling horror novelist Rick
R. Reed and Susaye Greene of The Supremes. The e-zine is currently
approaching its third year of publication and attracts over 100,000 hits
per month. Other notable guests on the site have included musician
Jim Brickman; bestselling author Barry Eisler; Survivor winners Ethan
Zohn, Jenna Morasca, and Aras Baskauskas; The Amazing Race
winners Alex Boylan, Chip Arndt, and Brennan Swain; astronaut Mike
Mullane; and celebrity biography writer J. Randy Taraborrelli.

Parrish is the author of the books
Into The Light: Experimentations In
Poetry & Prose
, the short story anthology The Moving Finger Writes,
and the novels
Marengo and Big Business. He attributes his success to
"taking all the things that were wrong in my life and replacing them
with things that were right." He presently resides in the mountains of
Northern Georgia.
